Hi Guys,

Sorry I didn't catch the positive response on the thicker/stiffer chassis for the LCG. R/C Tech threads moves so fast sometimes I dont even see it and it's moved to page 2 or 3

Seems like there is a serious interest in the chassis set, I will definitely look into it. I will keep you guys posted, however, it will be a good couple of weeks before I can have some solid numbers though. We need to get the drawings done first and then input it in the program to see how many we can do per sheet of graphite before generating a cost.

Steve Wang

Default Chassis

Steve, I would definitely be interested!
Have you looked into moving the batts and servo a little forward too?

Default Count me in

Would love to have one.

If ever, could you omit the small cut outs in the front and rear, and how about a solid top deck with the same thickness, since a thicker upper deck would require machining blue spacers at the rear.

My thoughts too. Maybe a better quality material too that has less flex

Default When???

I hope they could come out with a prototype soon!!!
A stiff chassis will really be good for Modified!!!!

Will be using it here when it opens!! It's our new Indoor On-Road Track! Courtesy of a Hobbyist (JPR) it Used to be an Off Road track!

It's really BIG!!!

You guys could also use the TEAM SUZUKI Lightweight Rear Hub Carrier part number TS-2106, Speedtech has them.

Its Small size will give you more clearance, but it has an ofset of 0.5 degrees, so you would have to compensate by replacing the rear suspension mount.

There is no problem with Jaco Foams rubbing on the rear. In order for the fronts not to rub, you can use a shim between the wheel and the hub, or use a hobby knife and remove about a mm of wheel on the inside. Parma Foams fit without any problems.
